Pevely, MO (May 3, 2008) On an unusually cold night in May, a great field of 120 racecars were on hand at I-55 Raceway to do battle on the high banked 1/3 mile dirt oval.
Two time and defending I-55 Raceway UMP DIRTcar Late Model Champion Bryan Collins of Elsberry, MO captured his second victory of 2008. Collins and Rusty Griffaw had a great battle for the lead during the first half of the main event, but Collins would pull away in the closing laps to claim the victory. The event was marred by a lap two crash in turn three that ended the night for several top competitors who had great runs in their qualifying heat races. The melee started when Dewayne Kiefer got into the back Dave Jumper at the end of the back stretch sending him spinning into turn three. The ensueing crash collected Tim Ratajczyk, Kevin Epperson, Dylan Sharp and Rich Lawson.
